Mountain Woman


mountain woman

dressed in deerhide
sewn with sinew thread
and 
a needle made of bone.

She is
Weathered,
Rugged,
a Fragile Human
under all her tough exterior.

She learned to skin a rabbit
before she could read.

After she learned to read,
She could still skin a rabbit.

mountain woman,
plain,
Jane,
I want to call her.

I think I knew her in another time
in the North Country.
